The thing I liked about this show is that it is about a real girl, with real problems, real friends and etc. Everything that happens on it seems authentic, it easily could be based on a true story, but they manage to keep it interesting. It reminds me a lot of "Skins", but lighter, not so much emphasis on drugs and sex, so if you like Skins, you will probably like My Mad Faty Diary. Also, it gives an insightful view on mental illness and different kinds of insecurities, which makes it easy to relate. It's the kind of show that you can't explain why, but it gets you obsessed with it, I watched the whole season in one day and I can't wait for the next one!
